We got there shortly after 11 on a Saturday. The place is rather small so you want to get there early to avoid peak times. We sat at the bar and shortly after the place was packed and people were waiting outside. We ordered case so and chips to go along with our margarita and craft beer. In that case... More

We had the guacamole! We will never forget that. We had 4 different tacos(a shortrib, a pork belly, a steak, and a chicken) , a salad. (The lorena?) Everything was flawless, delicious, so unique, and absolutely delicious. I will stop the again for sure. Great atmosphere. Excellent service. Fast service. Supet chill and casual, but divine, gourmet flavors.

As Bakersfield Otr was featured on Triple D. We thought we would try it out while in Cincinnati. It did not disappoint! The atmosphere was nice with an open look over Vine street. And the food. Excellent! I had the short rib taco which had wonderful flavor. In addition the guac was on point. I was a satisfied customer!

A great place for evenings, its small and packed to the rafters. The overall vibe is great and they have a good collection of local ale and whiskeys. The chili here is probably the best I had in town. Service is prompt and quick despite the crowds. Thumbs up!

Just a quick stop for drinks. Place was crowded for a Thursday night and there was a wait for a table. We got the queso & chips with salsa. I've got to say it was the best I've ever had. We shared a premium pitcher of margaritas and it to was above average. I'm really looking forward to going back... More

We arrived in Cinci at lunchtime and had previously planned to eat at another place but found it closed when we got there. Bakersfield was nearby and open so we have it a try. So glad we did! I had the chicken chorizo tostada with a spicy margarita and my guy had the chili and a taco. The food was... More

I was visiting a friend in Cinci and dined here for lunch beforehand. The place was busy but not overwhelmingly, so it was a fun atmosphere with attentive staff. The spicy margarita was great -- and the guacamole and tacos even better. I got the spicy chicken taco (the name is escaping me now) and the fish taco. Guac was... More

A recommendation of my customer whom I took to lunch. I was told their guacamole was homemade and great. They were right!. Big chunks of avocado with not too much spice. They waiter provided us with additional chips as well. For lunch there are several options including sandwiches. Their tacos are served "street style". Many options, small but diverse. Tacos...

For a lighter side order two tacos, or three if hungrier. The fish taco was great. Normally, this place has long waits but not at lunch.
